We live in a world where many Christians face persecution every day. That persecution could be anything from the loss of a job, being shunned by the community, to outright physical abuse and in many cases death. The sad fact is that many of these Christians suffer alone and without hope from outside sources. We in North America are very indifferent, on the whole, to the drive in a number of Middle East countries to eradicate the Christian church from their lands.There is little we can do, but pray and get the word out that we are in solidarity with these brothers and sisters. Francis Chan’s short video helps sound the alarm. Please check out a number of websites that target persecution and see what you might be able to do to help. And pray – pray for these people every day.
